standoff between law enforcement and this very well-armed group of people. it was a 50-day standoff in waco that ended in a massive fire and many, many fatalities. >> good evening. it appears tonight that david koresh, who believed that he was the son of god, perished today in a setting that closely resembled hell. and apparently, he took more than 85 of his followers with him, including it's estimated 17 children. >> what happened at waco was an absolute nightmare. but on parts of the very far right, on the anti-government far right fringe, it was seen not just as a nightmare but as a conspiracy, as a government conspiracy, as something that was ginned up and in fact faked by the government to create a big enough, scary enough situation that it would justify taking away everyone's guns. a freshman republican congressman from texas at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton administration to pro
-round limit for magazines. and finally congress needs to help rather than hinder law enforcement as it does its job. we should get tougher on people who buy guns with the express purpose of turning around and selling them to criminals. and we should severely punish anybody who helps them do this. >> collin, what's your reading on what he did today? do enough? >> we finally have leadership from the white house. it's great to see a comprehensive approach to the gun violence. the vice president promised me personally we're going to get something done about this. it was a great day. >> when you hear it, what do you see that works? what do you see that will stop people who are mentally unstable or emotionally unstable or criminally intent from getting guns to use in these spray shootings is what we're really concerned with right now. >> that's the biggest way to impact that is at the point of sale and requiring a background check on all gun sales. they realize that background checks don't take guns from law-abiding people. they pass those every time. but those with a felony conviction or a diagn
prominently, a bushmaster, like the one used in the newtown massacre. there was also a circle of uniformed law enforcement officers and gun violence victims. there was rolled out with pomp and circumstance, but did she get the message right? she, herself, admits that getting this passed will not be easy. >> if anyone asks today, can you win this? the answer is, we don't know. it's so uphill. >> uphill is right. the fact of the matter is that gun violence from assault weapons is estimated the to be between 2% and 8% of the gun crime in this country. so, is this how democrats should be spending their time? or are they overreaching and risking chances for success? roland martin joins me along with with raham slon. can this bill pass? >> look, you don't know until you actually take the effort. i think it's crazy when we say things such as, well, it's a small piece. it sort of reminds me of the federal budget, erin, when we say, well, it's only a drop in the bucket. well, every little bit helps. i don't have a problem if we have an impact on guns that could affect 2 to 8%. well, then we can deal wi

stressful moments for the authorities. as a result, we have more than 13,000 military and law enforcement personnel, ready for this event. we have snipers on the roofs. we have biological and chemical units prepared to deal with whatever comes up. we have a high degree of surveillance. satellites zooming in on the mall, as well as hundreds of surveillance cameras, to watch potential suspects. as one official told me last night, we have no specific threat. but we have to be ready for anything, george. >> and i know they've been preparing for this for a year. they've been locking the buildings on the parade route. they've been locking the garbage cans on the parade route. repaved the road. they are taking no chances. we have an incredible team of presidential savvy with us this morning. i want a quick word from two of them sitting with us here. let's start with matthew dowd, contributor to abc news. you have contributed to a combine, as well. both sides of the aisle. what does it take for a president to take a second inauguration and make it soaring? >> well, it's a much different situation
think he did. >> he's harvard two degrees -- >> so how could he so misstate the law on guns when in fact scalia and the supreme court in 2008 specifically said a woman in anacostia in a crack house next door could have a handgun? and also saying the president exploited this, could somebody tell him he's actually senator of a very large demographically changing state and not the spokesman for the tea party for, like, you know, the greater tea party, the greater houston chapter of the tea party? i was shocked. >> i was shocked too. frankly, because he seemed to be saying in the senatorial way, cruz, my friend and they barely know each other. cruz went after him over and over and over again. it was a very unusual performance by a freshman senator who doesn't seem to want to get along, wants to start a fire here. >> the problem is mika if this had happened in 2010 i'd say i understand the politics of it. the republican party i'm sorry, we have our backs against the wall. the president of the united states has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval
who disagrees new gun law opponents want to gin up fear or higher ratings or revenue. is there room for a fear disagreeing with the president or some of the things he did not all of them, is there room with this president? >> i don't think so. he talked about the republican friendly media the other day. obviously, he's talking about talk radio and maybe fox and other websites. this is what he routinely does. rather than have a real conversation, and say, look, i think there are a lot of complicated issues involved here, maybe part gun, maybe part hollywood, maybe part breakdown of the family, let's have a national conversation about this. instead, it's my opponents don't care about the poor children who are suffering, they're not reading the letters that i'm reading, they don't really care and in fact, it's all about their ratings. well, people who believe in the second amendment dearly they happen to have heartfelt views, maybe he disagrees, that's his right, but they shouldn't be demonized. >> one thing i was troubled about today, i don't want another study on this. if there's ano
. but in california, you have to return the ring if the wedding is canceled, under law. >> i support that law. i also support for those wondering about lindsay lohan, she posted a shot of herself with max george. the boy band singer. apparently the two are now dating or fueling the rumors. >> they're doing something. >> so that will end peacefully together in marriage. >>> and we also have some news to get to. and if any of you want a photo of rob and i -- >> why would you? >> we've been asking for this since i started over a year ago, a picture of the two of us onset a glossy that we could autograph and send to you. they just arrived yesterday. just in time. >> our crack pr department got right on it and a year later, there it is. and that's early on. >> that was one of my first couple of days on the job. because my hair is still long. >> we should put it on ebay and donate that 25 cents to charity. >> it would be 26 cents. let's make it even. >> we'll be back. >> you want one? >>> this is abc's "world news now" informing insomniacs for (1├▒ >>> this morning on "world news now," star studded, the c
. the progressive era new deal and great society laws were enacted when america was still a young and growing nation. they were enacted in a nation that was vibrant, raw, underinstitutionalized and needing taming. reinvigorating a mature nation means giving government to give people the tools to compete but then opening up a wide field so they do so ruak cowsly creatively. it means spending more here but de regulating more there. it means facing the fact we do have to choose between current benefits to seniors and investments in our future, and that to pretend we don't face that choice as obama did is effectively to sacrifice the future to the past. >> jonathan, first, what do you think of this speech and secondly, what do you think of david's column? >> i thought the president's speech was terrific, a progressive vision for the country. the guy won twice and ran on all the things he talked about yesterday, inclusion, balanced approach to the nation's problems. when it comes to david brooks' column, as mika was reading, i was thinking, how is that different from what the president actually said? i m
jobs exactly women could have in the military were gone. there was no law banning women from specific jobs in the military, but there was a defense department policy that said women could not serve in units whose primary mission was to engage in direct combat on the ground. so that has been the rule. no women in combat. that's the rule. supposedly. as if. >> well, i didn't lose my legs in a bar fight. >> that's illinois congresswoman tammy duckworth, a blackhawk pilot who lost both legs in iraq. technically she was not engaged in ground warfare because she was flying the aircraft and it was only the people shooting her down on the ground. do you really want to split hairs with her about whether or not that count as combat? in the wars and iraq and afghanistan, defining what counts as a combat role and what does not count as a combat role has been a fool's errand from the beginning. in those wars over the past decade, 61 american women have been killed in iraq in combat by hostile action. and in afghanistan, where the war is still going on, so far 23 american women have been killed in
